. really appreciate you taking the time. you wrote an op-ed in the washington times and said quote, delaying significant fiscal restraint will send the wrong signal and may serve as taping point for our economy. so you're fear is that interest rates could surge. to be father, we've had this disastrous situation for years and interest rates have kept falling in spite of all worries that there would be a disaster. >> that's right. that's one of the things that distinguishes the fiscal cliff, which we're coming up against right now. from what i described yesterday says the fiscal avalanche. we can see when the fiscal cliff is about to hit. the avalanche occurs when people stop buying u.s. treasury instruments and we have to start raising the interest rate. eventually, we get to the point where we can't afford anything and that's what i'm concerned about. >> so, let me talk about the solution here because we talked back in may about this. we're finally here at the deadline, right. you talk ed at the time about wanting a simpler tax system and were open to some people paying more and yo

guys in washington not being able to get a deal done just the atmosphere, the frustration and the fear that could create, how can you say that's not a cliff? >> well, a lot of hysteria out there, but again, the fact is only the social security tax holiday goes away. the withholding tables don't change. no one's taxes go up in january. the cuts through sequestration don't go into effect immediately and i would hope congress would make discrete cuts instead of stupid across the board cuts so we would have time to get to work on january 3rd and deal with restoring tax benefits to working families and deal with a more discrete way of spending. >> and you would be willing to take it if the market reacted incredibly negative, you think all of that is manageable? >> i'm not sure why that would happen because, you know, wall street is very good at manufacturing hysteria. i opposed the t.a.r.p. bailout. they can only manipulate it so far and then there's real value there that will come back. >> oh, i wish that we could talk about t.a.r.p. let's do it another time, can we, because i think t

economy is quite good here and the economy is below 75%. it's twice as big as washington, d.c. under 2 million people there. they're predominantly palestinian and their economy is very bad, unemployment very high. globalfire.com has called israel the tenth most powerful military in the world. why is that? well, let's break it down a little bit. they have compulsory military service there, so they have a lot of troops ready at a moment's notice, 176,000 active troops. they could also draw up a half million from the reserves pretty easily, so that's a robust force out there. look at their attack units here. 3,000 tanks if you add in all the army personnel carriers and artillery units and mortars out there, you have 12,000 ground units here. that's an awful lot, and of course their air force is for m m formidable. about 800 air strikes. this is what they use to strike at gaza. if you look at hamas, in terms of what they officially have in uniform, police, whatever you want to call them, only about 12,500 and they have nothing like the weapons the israelis have. however -- big point here -

to washington yesterday. we were told though by the white house this evening he'll make a statement on the fiscal cliff tomorrow but as far as what we know right now the administration says the president has already laid out his plan. it's a plan he says would cut the deficit by $4 trillion over the next ten years. it's also a plan those, that we've told you before doesn't add up. so something has to give. and someone needs to take the helm. last night here on "outfront" we tried to find out from chris van hollen what the president's role would be on the fiscal cliff. >> that remains to be seen exactly who will be the negotiate or negotiators. the white house has to be engaged. the president will make clear as he did in his acceptance speech last night we need to compromise. i think the president will be directly involved. >> directly involved but not clear what his role would be. will the president take the lead? here's the thing. americans want answers soon. today i overheard a major democratic fundraiser and lobbyist ben barnes saying this to a high ranking member of leadership.
